GDT: Avalanche at Wild 4/24/2014, Game 4 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs Round 1

Hannah Foslien

Good evening ladies and gentlemen! Your Colorado Avalanche take on the Wilds of Minnesota again tonight in the Land o' Lakes.

On the injury front, Tyson Barrie has an MCL sprain and is expected to be out at least 4 weeks. He was with the team today for the morning skate so I'm glad he can take in the playoff atmosphere with his comrades-in-arms. Matt Duchene skated again for the 3rd day in a row but Coach Roy reiterated that he is not expected to play anytime soon. No word on Smooth Johnny Mitchell's status.

Our beloved Avalanche welcome their newest member tonight, 2010 1st Round Pick Joey Hishon. Congrats! He will center the 4th line between Bugsy and Bordy and get some time on the 2nd PP unit. Ryan Wilson re-enters the lineup at defense this time, playing on the 3rd pair with Nate Guenin. The expected scratches are Yogi, Carey and Stef.

Projectile lineup:

Landy - Stats - Mack
Fatso - Radar - PA
Cody - Cliche - Talbot
Bugsy - Hish! - Bordy

Hejda - Johnson
Holden - Benoit
Wilson - Guenin

This is a biggie, 3-1 is different than 2-2. #GoAvsGo #WhyNotUs
